A Correction Yesterday at


A Correction

Yesterday at another blog I made a statement that is technically inaccurate. I said that I have read Proust's monumental work three times. That is not true. I have read the complete work once, in English. In French I have read Á côte de chez Swann once entirely and once in part (There was a shortened version reflective, I think of a movie of some time ago). In addition I read part of A L'Ombre des Jeunes Filles en Fleur. Sorry for the misrepresentation--it was meant to be shorthand, but I realized that suddenly it sounded like I spent my entire life reading Proust, which definitely is not true. Now, I shall go and have my madelaines and lemon tea, thank you.
